Default Folk dances

In general the folk dances might be divided into two groups: the Urban and Rural dances. The city dances are very different in character and style than those of the rural areas.

As for the rural folk dances we might divide them in dances from the North, the South and the Middle of Albania.
The South is generally divided in Toskria, Myzeq, Labria and amria, but there are specific areas within these regions which have a specific tradition: Lunxhria, Tepelens and Zagoria for example. These areas have their specific style and character of folk dances which cannot be classified in the general division and do not match with the overall common folk dances within the region.

The North, being Gheg country, is rather clear, the style and character is almost the same in each district, although there are some minor differences.

The Middle of Albania is something quite different. Here we find a combination of Gheg and Tosk elements.

National Ensemble of Folk Songs and Dances

National Ensemble of Folk Songs and Dances (AKKVP) was created as a professional ensemble in 1957. This ensemble consists of soloists, dance groups, and complex vocal Orchestra. Costumes are probably the greatest asset of this ensemble, not only from its originality, but also by the variety of colors, are estimated as rare values of traditional culture of a nation.

National Song and Dance Ensemble "Shota"

The National Song and Dance Ensemble "Shota" was established in 1948 as one of the first artistic and cultural institutions in Kosovo. For fifteen years this ensemble has operated as society and afterwards as a semi-professional ensemble.

In March of 1964 by decision of the Assembly of Kosova, "Shota" gains the status of professional ensemble as well as three other ensembles in Yugoslavia, "Llado" - Zagreb, "Kollo" - Belgrade and "Tanec" - Skopje.

For the past fifty years the Ensemble "Shota" has played a crucial role in the preservation, cultivation and development of the Albanian song and dance as well as bringing genuine national cultural values such as authenticity of costumes, authentic melodies and exotic unique dances with which this ensemble is presented in more than 50 countries around the world and in all the continents.
